I'm thinking seriously about grabing this pack, besides already having 3 of those games on steam (I still haven't played Retribution, and the $ diff is ridiculous... and all DLC and the old games, which I owned retail but lost them)
Can't recommend RS:V1 on Windows 7. Played V2 and loved that game, so I bought V1. Getting that game to run is really awful... and then going back to desktop so often. I believe is because compability, maybe on Win XP it works fine
You should play GRAW2, is a better game than 1. If you can stand old graphics, the firsts Ghost recon is really great... and difficult. Is the best of the series IMHO

GRAW's more tactical.
GRAW's flat-out tough & it doesn't take much for you and/or your teammates to go down or die.
Can't speak on the earlier GR games, though...
Can't speak on the new GR:FS, either.
Though, that looks more COD-ish than GR-ish, to me...
Maybe someone can speak on GR:FS?
Thanks for that both of you; I really appreciate it. I'm glad to hear DoW1/2 is worth it for single player (reviews seemed to come down on single player a bit hard in a way I didn't trust the review). I think I'll take the chance of the DoW bundle and see if I like it.
Thanks for the heads up on RS:V1 compatability issues. There's reports of a fix here
on SPUF. I think I'll bite on RS:V2 maybe RS:V1. (They're $2.50 each atm)
I'll give GRAW2 a chance at $2.50. I'm generally a bit leery of pre-2004 3D, which is why I haven't bit on the Thief or the first two hitman (though I have Contracts and Blood Money in my backlog). I picked up Dishonored yesterday on GG =)
I hear you. I'm finding it hard to pass up, even though I'm not sure if I'd like it.
